The Mentalist (2008)

Simon Baker as "Patrick Jane"

For years Patrick Jane has served as an independent consultant for the California Bureau of Investigation, earning a reputation for unusual methods and disregard for protocol -- not to mention his former career as a "psychic" -- while using his link with the department to hunt Red John, the serial killer who murdered his wife and daughter. When a scandal causes the dissolution of the CBI team, he goes to Mexico, until tracked down by the FBI and drawn into their fold to help solve crimes once again with his acute powers of observation. With negotiations he secures jobs there for his associates, Theresa Lisbon and Kimball Cho.

Golden Globe (2010) Nominated Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama
Screen Actors Guild Awards (2010) Nominated Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series
Emmy (Primetime) (2009) Nominated Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
